The Man Who Can't Take No For an Answer is making arrangements to run as an independent should he lose the Democratic primary to upstart anti-war candidate Ned Lamont. Lieberman has filed papers that would allow him to petition for placement on the November ballot his campaign acknowledged last night.
Tom Swan, Lamont's campaign manager, has said an independent run would hurt Democrats.
"He does this from a position of weakness, where he looks like a desperate career politician attempting to cling to power," Swan said.
As if to acknowledge as much and give a stiff finger in the eye of the party, Lieberman has also filed to create a new party called Connecticut for Lieberman.
Perhaps old Joe should ask Pat Buchanan how that strategy worked for him.
